oh! how busy I've been!

I feel like I have not gotten to blog all week!  Nor have I gotten to read many of my favorite blogs lately.  Oh, I must have missed out on so many great sales, deals, freebies, crafty ideas, recipes, green living tips, coupons, child rearing stories and tips....

I have been focusing on setting up my new shop on Etsy.  I have built a little stock pile (I was pretty much bare bones since Christmas) and have changed my product line name.  I thought Soap by Erin was just a little too dull.  I have chosen Sweet Sydney Bean.  Simple, pretty and sweet.  This name has a very special meaning to me.

Check out my shop!  Leave me a comment about what you think.  Should I change something, add something, fix something?  Is there anything you think is outstanding? Do you have any advice for me?

Keep in mind I am still adding to my shop and you will see new products every few days.

For my faithful readers, leave me a comment about my new site, SweetSydneyBean, and Wednesday I will randomly pick one of you to send a special product to!  If I cannot link your name to a blog, please leave me your email or be sure to check back wednesday!!

Thanks!  and wish me luck!

I really like the sweet cupcake soap. What a sweet treat to give as gifts to dieters especially! You could market as a sweet treat without the calories! heheh

For the $9.80 shipping; how many do you think would fit in a box? I know I'd love one, and I have a couple birthdays coming up soon too.... hmm

Ahhh, now it makes sense. When I looked at 'people who heart my shop' I saw soap that looked like yours in the newest shop on the list - Sweet Sydney Bean. But I didn't take the time to look at the profile or anything. But now, I know that it actually is you....

I like your shop and love your header! Making any peppermint soap anytime soon?

Hi Erin, I think your new site is great! It was very easy to use and it looks wonderful!

Thanks guys!

Amy, I can fit 9 cupcakes in the flat rate box!! Or some cupcakes and something else, or just a few cupcakes by themselves!

Let me know if you are interested, with Etsy I can create a special posting of your order and appropriate shipping.

I really love your lotions! (well, I really love all your products...). I have tried many other synthetic-free and nothing compares with yours. Really. No bias here...I am really picky! The scents are wonderful and the lasting moisturizing that I find missing in all others is truly outstanding!

What I love about the soaps is that the experience is so lovely & creamy and finally I no longer have itchiness on my legs and body, which mainstream soaps seem to leave me so dry or irritated. And, of course the scents are heavenly :)

Keep up the awesome work, honey!
Your biggest fan,

I was very interested in your natural lotions after reading about and seeing them at the Etsy shop. After reading the comment above, I'm even more interested!

Your shop looks so sweet and professional! As you probably know from my blog I don't have a lot of budget for that kind of fun stuff, but if I did I would certainly buy some! Very cute...I can just imagine how nice they smell.

Erin, First of all...I love the shop! It's all been worth the wait! :) Great job with it.
I really like the cupcake soap. I think it would be a nice gift for some of my nieces and nephews. I like the heart shaped crayons as well--very cute idea! I think it would be fun to have the crayons in different shapes. I know my nephews would like the idea but they would go for another shape. Maybe even just a triangle or square.
My favorite interest for myself would have to be the lotion. It just looks scrumptious!! I like to keep a lotion in my console compartment in the car....just for me...with no sharing! Ahh..Can you tell I am a mom? :)
And a chance to win? Oh, please count me in!
Don't miss out on the giveaway I am doing on my blog right now for 3 chances to win Zarbee's Natural Cough Syrup.

Great shop! I actually already placed an order for the heart crayons! Those will be perfect for L's V-day basket! Keep up the great work; I would love more of the sugar scrubs you make. They smell SO good! I'm sure everyone would love them too!
